The order took a while from drinks to our main course. It didn't seem too busy. The food was okay not amazing.
Great find. We were looking for a new local place and this is a find! The service is exceptional. The food is fantastic!
I love everything about the Root, it is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is amazing and the service is spot on!
This was our first time eating at your establishment, on the recommendation of friends and family. It was my husband's birthday. And we truly enjoyed our experience! The food was fantastic and our server was spot on awesome! He knew his job! We were taken care of but not pestered. We will look forward to our next visit and have already handed out kudos about The Root! Thank you!
Service was great. The atmosphere was very nice. We ordered the Mac and cheese appetizer which had a mustard flavor in there and was excellent. Tried the soup de jour which was a tomato bisque. It was mediocre. The Arugla side salad was simple yet very flavorful. The special encrusted whitefish had no flavor and the bed of cream spinach was too salty to eat. Was not worthy of the $27 price tag. We were treated to a free dessert due to the disappointment. The dessert was a chocolate tart with ice milk. It was excellent. Even though we were satisfied with the dessert offering, was still disappointed with paying full price for whitefish even though we sent a lot of the dish back. Overall, loved the atmosphere enough and will try again.
Finally went, heard so much about this place.... It lived up to every expectation!!
It was wonderful, great food, service (Eric) great. He made the experience very relaxed, he was knowledgeable! I had the pork chop...OMG... It was incredibly tasty!!
Craft cocktail was very good, I had the "Real housewives of White Lake", I could taste the fresh muddled cucumber, cucumber not over powering, very smooth drink.
The Root is well worth the drive, I will be going back, please go have dinner or lunch week worth it!!
Awesome food! Great service!
Loved this restaurant. Food was delicious, server was awesome! Can't wait to return!
Very good food, great service. Small menue but all what you need
Food was wonderful, I would like to see more variety on the menu but what we got was very good. The painkiller cocktail was perfect. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive.
Great menu, with something for everyone.. love the food, beer and ambiance..
I have eaten at The Root many times and loved the food and service. I was meeting some friends that I do not see very often and suggested The Root. They had to drive along way to get there.
2 if us ordered the pork chop and one the shrimp dish. The food was VERY disappointing. They tasted like food reheated from the day before. Way over done. I will still recommend The Root , since I have had good experiences there in the past. But one more meal like that and I will not return.
Maybe it was a Sunday night with not too many customers, but there were no other potato to order along with our grass fed burger, because I was gluten free. No mashed, no baked, no other veggie was offered except for arugula but I was ordering a salad anyway. And I thought the bday dessert was complimentary, but it wasn't and I didn't say anything about it, but it bothered me afterwards. I have always loved the Root, but I don't want to go there any time soon
Such a great atmosphere and food! Great service too! We will definitely be going back!
Excellent food, drinks, and service as always! My wife and I enjoy this restaurant very much and don’t mind the 45 minute ride to get there at all—always worth it!
Everything was superb from the service to the beverages to the presentation of the food. It’s our favorite place to dine in the area. Not to be missed!
Great food. Great service. My new favorite Best value for quality dining
Dinner was fabulous. Thank you to the chef. We had ribeye steak with mushrooms and bleu cheese mousse, au gratin potatoes and greens. Every bite was delectable. Very generous portions, Our waitress was very attentive. Also free dessert for our Anniversary (Peach Pie with Chantilly cream) so delicious . Very pleasant atmosphere for a romantic evening out.
Great food and service! Unfortunately, a guy at another table had his dirty, bare feet up on the chair which made it a little gross
The Root is always an amazing place to try new foods. We frequently get the Vegan Tasting option which always includes lots of surprising dishes. It’s always an amazing experience to dine there!
Great atmosphere, enjoyed the setting. Waitress was nice but not exceptional. Seemed irritated. Fish portion was very small and over cooked/dry. Sloppy joe was also dry. Desserts were great! Tiramisu was outstanding. I probably wouldn’t return because there were more cons than pros.
The food and service awesome. It was worth the 35 minute drive. I highly recommend!
My friend had the pork chop that was on the menu. It was overcooked and dry. The waiter took it back and brought her another one a while later and it was much better. I had the sloppy Jo and remembered it from the past and was looking forward to it. It was dry there was no sauce on it And I was very disappointed. I did not mention it because we had already sent back the pork chop. We both had the onion soup and it was delicious.
Great food everything was perfect would like a larger menu with more selections.
Awesome vegan tasting menu as always! My husband loves the sloppy joe.
Great service and flavorful meal and vino value.
Locally sourced foods, exquisite combinations, and memorable dishes in abundance. This is a winning destination for the most demanding gourmand. It gets my highest endorsement.
Had the chefs special quiche it was delicious except the greens were way over salted (for my taste)
Wow! Let me start by saying we are usually disappointed when we go out to brunch. So we were hesitant to try "yet another" restaurant that claims it can "do a great brunch." We loved it. It was simple. It was perfect. Our bartender started us out with peach mango mimosas. We then moved on to the lavender honey spelt pancakes with honey walnut butter. It all went down beautifully and we had the best waiter in the place -- attentive and polite. We're coming back more often!
wonderful restaurant great choices fabulous servers wonderful onion soup spectacular ribeye WOW
Nice place, great service but the food was C + at best
Service was excellent, food was amazing, we were well taken care of and well fed!
The food was outstanding!! They have very different dishes-all spectacular! I’ve never had a bad one. The atmosphere and decor are both top notch. Great restaurant!
My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner. One of the nice things was to see how many of the items were locally sourced or from the State. I had the NY strip which was done to the temperature I ordered and served with a side of mustard greens, which were outstanding. My wife had the scallops and a salad. The scallops were cooked nicely but the flavors weren't out of this world, but still delicious. I would say this is a nice restaurant overall and we would definitely eat here again a nod suggest it to others. Our service was spectacular!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Ribeyes were done to perfection and spicy shrimp dish was raved abput
Always amazing year after year
What a wonderful find and we will definitely be back. The tasting menu was outstanding!
Amazing as always! One of our favorite places to dine. We had guests in town from England and of course we had to bring them to the root! Our guests own two successful restaurants in England and were delighted with the offerings at the root, so much so that they felt obligated to thank the chef personally for the meal.
Simply cannot go wrong at the root !
They have the best cheese tray. Flavors in dishes were spot on
The service was great, our wait staff were always there when we needed more coffee, etc. The food was good, but the tofu scramble could have been better. (It was a bit over salted and I prefer the tofu more "scrambled" as opposed to bigger chunks, and I also like more of a turmeric flavor, but overall it was still good). My wife had the biscuits and gravy, which she said was good, but also a bit over salted. I also had the vegan pop tart which was very good! I just wish there were more brunch vegan options. (Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you HAVE options, but if you're going to go there, dive all in :) ... maybe vegan pancakes, tempeh with biscuits and gravy, crepes, etc...).
Oh, one more thing... they were playing old hard rock, which was odd for brunch. Not bad, just odd... :)
